Industry proponents, international investors, major suppliers, and active community member’s listened to 14 panels from First Nation leaders, academics and local communities, focusing on furthering B.C.’s LNG growth.

The topics included, making B.C. a globally competitive jurisdiction, financing LNG, First Nations and community partnership, maintaining strong environmental standards and building a skilled workforce to meet LNG demand.

“This conference was largest of its kid in our province – it clearly demonstrates our commitment to building an LNG industry here in B.C.,” Minister of Natural Gas and Development, Rich Coleman said. “ WE look forward to bringing all the interested partners together again next year.

The conference saw new additions this year, including a trade show, providing B.C. businesses and international companies an opportunity to connect with industry proponents. There was also an interactive career experience on display for youth, showcasing the skills and trades training required for finding a long-term career in the natural gas sector.

“This is a generational opportunity to build an LNG industry, to create jobs for British Columbians and a prosperous future,” said B.C. Premier, Christy Clark. “We’ve seen incredible progress over the last few years and this conference was another clear sign of how close we are to making it all happen.”
